Plans are already well underway for the 2019 Tri-County Independence Day Blast. The Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce is once again honored to serve as the sponsoring organization of this event which draws thousands to our community. It’s an evening enjoyed by children of all ages – from preschool age children to teens, to parents and grandparents.
Generations come together to enjoy an evening of entertainment culminating in a spectacular fireworks show. Last year’s event featured a children’s parade, a firefighters splash pad, food, and of course, parachute bingo. This year we are pleased to announce that we are adding a carnival with rides and games for the kids. We’ll also have several concession stands and food trucks. Make plans now to bring the entire family out mid-afternoon to enjoy a full range of activities before the fireworks light up the night sky.
Last year’s fireworks show was absolutely spectacular, and this year we are striving for an even more elaborate display. The Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce is committed to carrying on this beautiful, family-friendly tradition but we cannot do so without your help! A minimum of $15,000 is needed to fund our Fourth of July Celebration. Can we count on your business to support this event? As a sponsor, you will receive kudos from the community as a business committed to the residents of Pittsburg, Camp County, and the surrounding area.
